Meeting Thursday 3rd June, Oxford Town Hall (Panel Room), 2-4pm

Moving Voices is a project which provides volunteering opportunities for people aged 16-25, around all aspects of dance. The Oxford committee has been going for about 8 months and have run projects including a trip to Move It in London, and a flashmob in Oxford city centre. Moving Voices is peer-led, meaning the committee makes all the decisions, and makes their own projects happen, with the support of a facilitator and overall project manager.

Projects that Oxford Moving Voices are currently planning include being involved in a flashmob event in Oxford as part of Big Dance South East in July, and a ‘Mini Move It’ festival of youth dance in and around Oxford with workshops, performances and stalls in the Autumn. You can get involved as much or as little as you like – you can come up with your own project and get others to help you run it, or you can come on board for one event only. You don’t have to be a dancer to get involved – there are opportunities for photographers, project managers, for getting experience in finance or event management, or teaching workshops and designing marketing material, amongst other things. Moving Voices offers the chance of getting accredited awards for your work and time, as well as various training opportunities around anything dance-related (which you can suggest or even organise). There is money to cover any expenses so you won’t be out of pocket.

The committee is currently welcoming new people to join and become part of the forthcoming projects. If you would like to find out more – no obligations to join in! – please come along to a meeting onTHURSDAY JUNE 3rd in Oxford Town Hall (Panel Room), 2-4pm(on St Aldate’s near Carfax/Cornmarket St).  Do come along if you’re interested in it even if you’re not sure how much time you can commit – there will be ways of getting involved for just one day if you like.

Thanks and hope to see you at the meeting!
